Private home this is not a narrow shotgun tho it was built during that period. Large outdoor spaces, open floor plan.

The Space

Completely remodeled Bouligny plantation slave house just 2 blocks off the Mississippi. Open concept, brand new furniture throughout - this is a camelback double-wide so it is a house behind the front house - in the middle of everything but completely private front deck and back patio area. You can fall asleep to the sound of trains and boats up and down the Mississippi river, and the music from Tipitinas famous jazz club is nearby but not loud.

We've put together a list of all the spots locals love and tourists don't know about.
We are solid five-star rated on (website hidden). (website hidden)

We have set our home up in every way so that the guest comes away with the experience of having LIVED in New Orleans. It is a profoundly unique city and sadly most visitors never make it beyond the French Quarter and miss out on a wealth of beauty and experience. Specifically, the size, condition, and the abundance of TWO private spaces in the heart of the city are virtually unheard of.

Guest Access

Everything is private to guests. The house is a double so the front is a permanent tenant. Once you open the gate, everything from there on back including the front porch and back deck are exclusive to the guest.

Interaction with Guests

Keyless entry, so mostly via text and my assistant Shinda unless some need arises.

The Neighborhood

The Bouligny Plantation neighborhood is an area of Uptown three blocks south of Magazine Street and a short walk up Napolean Avenue to the streetcar.

Getting around

Bus right at the corner tho most guests prefer to use the streetcar, goes direct to Bourbon Street.

Other Things to Note

We have the fastest WiFi available in New Orleans and our WiFi signal is strong enough to stream full screen HD anywhere in or outside the house, very convenient for those working while away. Rouses grocery store is 1/2 a block away, not even worth getting in a car for if you bring one. Easy, quiet, true New Orleans living, steps from everything.

  • Enzo's place is fantastic! A definite 5-star recommend and absolute "would stay again." It's located in great proximity to the greatest hits of NOLA (French Quarter, Frenchmen St. jazz clubs), while also providing a taste of what it's like to "live like a local" in a cool residential neighborhood that's pin-drop quiet at night. The house itself is charming and beautiful, a stunning stand-out on the block. Big bedrooms, great balcony, homey, comfortable and VERY clean. It actually looks exactly like the pictures, so trust you know what you'll be getting. Communication with Enzo was perfect, including a stellar welcoming packet that will make first-timers feel like experts with some excellent recommendations. (Don't miss Sunday jazz brunch at Buffa's!) We had everything we needed and had a great time. Thank you Enzo!

  • This place was AWESOME! There was plenty of space for the 8 of us and were also able to make the one bathroom (which we were worried about at first) work just fine. The balcony was great, we could wake up and have our coffee out there and just chill. The location was great. We were in a neighborhood that was pretty quiet, so we could escape the madness of the crowds when we wanted, but were close enough to walk to Frenchman and the Quarter just fine, probably about a 15 minute walk to each location. We had a car and were able to easily explore other parts of New Orleans as well, and got there in no time at all. Would definitely recommend this place for a few people or a party of 8, its great. Thank you, Enzo for being so accommodating and even checking in with us to make sure we had what we needed!

  • This house is really nice and cozy and so close to both the French Quarter and the Marigny and Frenchman Street. We had an amazing time in New Orleans thanks to this lovely place. Enzo was great and accommodating, the apartment was super clean, and there were tons of towels and sheets and the five of us felt like we were living in New Orleans while we were there.

It is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Rooms are big and comfortable. We had an amazing time staying there and we will definitely go back next year! Thanks Enzo! It was great dealing with you!

  • This place rules! I was so lucky to find this wonderful home on Airbnb. The home is renovated down to the last nail and it is lovely. This also means very clean, a biggie for me. The rooms are spacious, the windows let in lovely light throughout the day and the amenities are top notch. This unit has a second floor balcony that overlooks the street. I spent many a morning out there sipping coffee and enjoying the passersby!

    The location is ideal for the French Quarter and Marigny, really it is convenient to the whole town as it is located near bus service and the street car. A little walking might be in store to some locations, but its good to work off all the good food and drink! I had a rental car and was able to park in front of the house every day of the 30 I stayed.

    The linens are lovely and very clean. The kitchen is stocked with new dishes and cookware. There is a sweet, brand new laundry set up as well.

    Enzo was the icing on the cake! He is a hardworking, patient, charismatic darling! He took care of all my needs very quickly. There was never an unanswered text or phone call. He ensured that I was well versed on the town as well. I (email hidden) straight from him! He is very particular about his guests and we had an in depth conversation before I rented to ensure I was the kind of person he wanted in his property. This is in a neighborhood and each resident expects respect of their personal privacy and comfort regarding noise and traffic. This is understandable and makes the location even more desirable for safety reasons as well as general warmth in spirit! As a single woman I felt safe and at ease on this 'up and coming' neighborhood street. A few families, lots of young couples and late 20, early 30 kinds of neighbors.

    I could not say more about this apartment. I will always look back fondly on my time (a whole month) in this apartment. Good memories and good sleep!

    Response from Enzo:

    Thanks so much Jessica. I could not have a copywriter write a more eloquent recap of what we're about. From my mouth to Gods ears we will have many many more guests like you.

About
Ex-travel journalist, David and I used to home trade around the world for 11 years. People loved our hometrading stories and often couldn't home trade themselves but still want that experience of actually living in a real neighborhood, food shopping and cooking, things you can't normally do on vacation. We also make sure all our guests are as hooked up as they can be, including restaurants and clubs most tourists don't know exist. I have a food blog that moves mostly between SF and New Orleans.
